That's funny!  I was allowed to watch that as a young girl.  Why?  I have no idea. ???  

Not for kids I must say!

actually, they are married to the Church, the Bride of Christ.  A priest is "another Christ" not espoused to Christ.

I dunno... the mainstream media is running with it, not that they haven't been fooled before.

That being said, I have heard of things like this before, especially from Italy where priests having children with women seems to be a reoccurring problem. So I didn't question it when I heard it in the mainstream media.

"Eye of the Tiber" takes real life news stories and lampoons them. Also, the Internet has a way of using sensationalism in reporting, sort of like the National Enquirer, which makes stories like these always seem suspect.

Unfortunately, yes! Priests break their vows, and married men have mistresses.

They may be a problem, but at least a 'natural' problem.

History is full of priests and bishops with children.

History is full of a lot of things - I'm getting tired of seeing people who don't really understand natural law use it as some kind of defense. These priests are liars and betrayers of their promises, there is nothing "natural" about that. Dante didn't put sodomites in the centremost circle of hell, in the jaws of satan - that place was reserved for traitors.

This is amazing!
Why these women put themselves in such situation?
I know for a fact that there are more men in the world, why then go after priests? Doesn't that look a bit diabolical? It reminds one of the sort of bad women that is described in the wisdom books.

Besides, are these women 12 years old? I mean, everybody has a love story gone wrong, this does not mean we must make a petition for the Church to change.

Really, this world is getting sillier every day.

Trying to force Eastern Catholics to comply with Western practices has happened before.......
